VANGRD is my ode to togetherness—each model, each piece, each step is a
celebration of collective empowerment over the solitude of competition. It’s a demonstration of force, a unison of voices that rises above the singular to celebrate the impact of women as “vanguards” through intentional unity.

I had the models emerge together on the runway. This was a conscious decision to illuminate the concept that we are strongest when we walk side by side, supporting and uplifting each other. Celebrating diversity and collaboration both with one another and with AI. I also trained my now AI model to include Vitiligo, a skin condition that I and many have. It’s my way of making those who have it feel seen too.

Harnessing luxe vegan leather, each piece in the collection is meticulously designed to encapsulate the essence of empowerment through structured silhouettes, while championing the grace of fluidity with masterful layering techniques. Wildy’s designs reimagine the conventional armor of femininity, merging resolute aesthetics with supple, cruelty-free textiles to showcase the robust elegance inherent in every woman.
